Right or Privilege?

political updates & opportunities

Please Comment!

Hello everyone!

I know we are all pressed for time, but it would really encourage me if you commented/discussed/debated on my posts.  Even a “totally agree” “good post” or a couple words just so I know you were here, it would be much appreciated.  I know my posts can be really long and menacing, and you might not have the time to put in your opinion, but if you can,

please, pleasePlease, PLEASE say something!  The whole purpose of this blog is to discuss!

It would greatly encourage me.  Plus, I know when you visit (my blog stats)… hehehe, so don’t think you’re invisible and that I didn’t know you were here. 🙂  Not to scare you off or anything. 😉

And, to those who have commented, THANK YOU so much.

  3. Ack! You know I lurk. I do read your posts and I know it can be discouraging to not get comments.

    So I noticed that you have another blog, is that your third (not counting the first)?

  5. verbumvitae: No problem, I’m glad I stumbled across it.

    Elyse: My newest blog is http://www.bulletin.wordpress.com which basically informs WA people of events that you wouldn’t want to miss (movies, performances, etc.). It’s mostly for people I know so that we can compile all events somewhere.

  7. Blog popularity takes time, especially if you’re running a purely topical blog. Be patient ^_^

  8. Just dropping in to get the ACLU address so we could get these cards out. It was a family project and we just included scripture and a nice note. Thanks for the info. Erin

  9. Awesome! Thank you so much for taking action and sending a card! Making it a family group effort and adding scripture is a great idea! Thanks for commenting, it’s very encouraging to hear that others are doing it too.

  11. Nothing really exciting is going on… I’ll try and think of something though. ; )

  12. If you want people to comment, I would suggest writing your posts in language that fits your audience. It’s all about style and presentation. Not saying that you’re doing anything wrong, but if you aren’t getting the results you want it may be time to shift gears.

  16. Lampie: Absolutely! You wrote it, it’s your opinion, you can blog it if you want to. It isn’t their property. Freedom of speech! But, please e-mail it to me and I will post it for you and give your name (Lampie… or do you want your real name?).
